Top Kill = Top Dud

Posted: May 31, 2010 in Political Commentary, The Blog!

Well it’s been over 40 days now and the oil is still spewing out into the Gulf of Mexico causing the deaths of thousands of animals and ruining the lives of so many people who are dependent on the fishing business. BP tried the “Top Kill” method by shooting mud into the rig in the hopes that it would slow the oil down enough that they could cement the hole shut. However, that plan failed and now it is on to the next. This is really getting out of hand and it is becoming more and more of a travesty as each day passes. President Obama has but the financial responsibility on BP but ultimately made it his administrations responsibility. The President is in a tough spot, there really isn’t much more that he can do, BP are the ones who caused this mess and are the one’s who have all the equipment to finally put a stop to this. Obama visited Louisiana this past week and saw first hand why BP and the rest of the big oil businesses need to be regulated just like the banks have been, if not another one of these disasters will occur again. I’ve talked before about limiting and regulating drilling were in the long run we will be depended on safer more environmentally friendly forms of energy. President Obama halted all future oil drilling for the next 6 months to a year, which is a good start, but not a solution. In time this must be dealt with and done fast.

    Top Kill sounds like a 80’s action movie. What kind of name will they have for something that will replace Top Kill? Superkill?
